The crockpot is out because the oven is broken!  This was a super easy prep, maybe 15 minutes max, and is DE-LISH!

Crockpot Chicken in Wine Sauce

1 large onion sliced
3 medium tomatoes diced
4 cloves garlic minced
6 chicken thighs, bone in
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flake
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 cup cold water
1 Tbsp cornstarch
1 Tbsp minced chives

Season the chicken with salt, pepper, red pepper flake and garlic powder on the skin side (although you can remove the skin if you want to eliminate some fat/calories).

Heat the oil over medium high in a frying pan, and place chicken in skin side down. The goal of this step is to get get a nice crust on the skin (not cook it!). This should only take about 5 minutes.

While the chicken is browning, add onion, tomato, garlic and white wine to the crockpot, and give it a stir. Arrange browned chicken on the onions/tomatoes, and cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6.

After it’s cooked, gently remove the chicken from the crockpot, and place on a serving platter. Be careful! The meat will be falling off the bone! Add the cornstarch to the cold water, mix, and add to the juices in the crockpot to thicken. Pour the thickened sauce over the chicken.

Serve with rice or noodles for the family, and over broccoli to keep it low carb – garnish with minced chives. The cornstarch can be omitted…the juices are delicious without being thickened.
